Cuba is the sugar island. And from the sugar the alcohol is extracted and from this spirits are produced. The spiritous liquor, subjected to an aging process and subsequently distillation, gives origen to a rum of exquisit quality, chemically pure - Cuban rum; so famous in the world as its tobacco.
Cuban rum can be consumed alone (strike) or with ice (on the rocks). In this case the most ideal rums are the golden ones (with five years of preservation) or the aged ones (seven years).
